TV Junkie: 'Heroes' and '24' Deliver; Lots of New Episodes Tonight
A Word or 116:
So I missed the first 10 minutes of the Grammys which meant that I missed the effing Police. I punished myself by watching the rest of the Grammys: a collection of posers I will never go see perform and whose songs I've never heard and will never care to hear. 24 is back with a 2 hour allotment but my understanding is that I'm not supposed to watch 24 anymore because people in the Bush Administration are big fans of the show, particularly the torture and fear-mongering aspects of it. I guess that's why I was supposed to stop liking Star Wars as a piece of fiction because that's how Ronald Reagan really viewed the world.
